    Just a thought. If someone actually cares about their cat, shouldn't they keep it contained? For much the same reason that I do not allow my dogs to wander loose? I would be worried all the time wondering if my pet was going to return, or be dead somewhere...

    OK if you have a cat problem trap them take them to the animal control dept in your area and let them deal with it. If they come back trap them get a toe sack and brick and throw them in the lake. Good enough?

    Me too Becky, I have these great litter boxes, Clevercat, with lids on top with a hole the cat uses but keeps the JRT from dumpster diving. I like my cats far too much to subject them to the threat of some Neanderthal with a pellet gun or a Chesapeake!

    Ken,

    I can't tell you whose cat is fowling your yard, but I'm pretty sure it isn't Ed or Becky's cat.

    However, the cat may be the least of your worry. It seems there may be armed cave men on the loose!

    Ken,

    Only to get a CAVE WOMAN! If he just did that around the campfire the other cavemen would laugh at him!

    so when your chessie licks his butt and gives you a lick that doesn't bother you? when I my dog licks me I have to decide what smells better his breath or horse manure, he really loves those road apples when they are frozen,and I can't shoot the rope horse.
    It is a dilemma for sure
